    Hi all...

    I have 5 pullets ( 11 weeks old). Two of them just finished up a round of antibiotics due to a respiratory issue. We had a very rainy day here in SLC and the temperature right now is 54 degrees. Due to their age and past health issue... should I be concerned about the temperature tonight?

    I bet this is too late to help you, but I would have probably used a bit of heat. More for the dampness than for the temp.

    Its been so cool and damp here in VA this summer that I have run a heat lamp nearly every day with one pen or another. Crazy weather!

    i agree, a heat lamp would be the best solution. dampness isn't good for any animal or human alike, espically when they're getting over an illness
